AOR Strontium Support II Details

  • Reduces age-related bone loss
  • Reduces production of cells that break down bone
  • Increases cells that build bone
  • Increases bone mineral density
  • Reduces risk of fractures

Strontium is a trace mineral which concentrates in the skeletal system, where it supports the function of osteoblasts (the cells which form new bone) while reducing the differentiation and activity of osteoclasts (the cells which resorb old bone). Strontium Support II helps maintain bones.

Strontium is an important mineral for bone health and it is found in most foods where calcium is found. In 2002, AOR introduced the world’s first supplemental strontium citrate for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, post-menopausal women and those at an increased risk of bone fractures. AOR’s Strontium Support II comes in two sizes and provides an effective dose of this bone health powerhouse in a convenient two capsule-a-day formula. 
 
Strontium is a mineral that actually helps rebuild bone. While supplements like calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K maintain bone health, and conventional bone drugs reduce bone degradation, strontium actually increases osteoblast production while decreasing osteoclast production, resulting in increased bone development and decreased bone loss. Since strontium is similar in molecular structure to calcium, it is thought to activate the calcium receptors in the bone, stimulating the building of new bone and telling the body to use calcium effectively in bone tissue, while inhibiting bone breakdown. A recently published study showed that strontium was not only safe to take over the course of 10 years, but also that it continued to reduce the risk of osteoporotic fractures throughout this time period. Strontium Support II is an excellent addition to calcium supplementation for those with osteoporosis or osteopenia, post-menopausal women or those at an increased risk of bone fractures.
